No Angels, No Villains

Michael Petrilli of The Fordham Institute has a self reflective piece up at The Hechinger Report about the misguided tendency for reformers to see themselves on the side of 'good' and in turn, those on the other side as 'bad'.
But if this is really to be about “the kids,” and not just our own search for meaning, we need to be careful of lapsing into morality plays. We need to be particularly mindful of not villainizing our opponents. And we need to be humble enough to acknowledge the technical challenges in what we’re trying to achieve.
